The Apartment Hunt


(Caitlin) Traveling to New York City to figure out our future was so overwhelming. Even writing this post trying to recap it... is overwhelming.

We traveled straight from DC to NYC and stayed at SIXTY hotel. Fabulous location! We grabbed dinner with a high school friend at The Smith and had an amazing time catching up.

The next morning we met our broker, Mary, at the Standard Cafe for lattes and breakfast. Then we started apartment hunting!

We looked at 17 apartments and knew that we had found our future home. We talked through details over dinner at Beauty & Essex. This was my fav dinner spot when I traveled for work years ago. Still amazing! Tapas, tapas, and more tapas.



The following day we saw 8 more apartments with a pit stop at Balthazar. New favorite place. The best croissants!



Then we road the subway for the first time and somehow survived!


After seeing 25 apartments in 30 hours, we found a perfect apartment in Stuytown in East Village. We celebrated with more tapas! This time from The Stanton Social. Ending a productive day with a cookie dough twinkie is fabulous, just saying.



Our last day in NYC we explored the city! We walked through West Village, had lunch at the Standard Grill, and stopped by the new Instagram office.




We ended our trip in Hoboken with friends, a delicious dinner in their new apartment, and a killer view!


Excited and nervous for the next chapter in NYC! Until next time!
